'The Nun Who Kissed Elvis' Featured in Entertainment Weekly!

February 01, 2011

Be sure to pick up a copy of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly to read a great interview with Mother Dolores Hart. After appearing in ten movies, including 1957's "Loving You" with Elvis Presley, Hart left her Hollywood career to become a Roman Catholic nun.

Looking back on her onscreen kiss with Elvis, Hart says "There were hundreds of people all around and when we got to the kiss, the director, Hal Kanter, said, 'Cut! Get me makeup! She's blushing.'"

Mother Hart is also a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which means she'll be voting on the Oscar nominees this year!
